PS3 Might Not be 100% Backwards Compatible

Sony has earlier claimed that the PS3 console will play both PlayStation and PS2 games. However Sony spokesperson Reiko Sakamoto recently said to the IDG News Service that the PlayStation 3 might not be 100 per cent backwards compatible.

His comments came after Sony published a list of games which are not compatible with the new silver slimline PS2 console. So far 38 PSone and nine PS2 games were listed, including Tekken 5, Hitman: Contracts and Resident Evil.

"We believe multiple factors are responsible," Sakamoto explained that the console has a new and different chipset which is not compatible with the way some software is programmed, that can for some games result in glitches such as hangs and slow game saves.
